2012 Bike Predictions

Recommended Posts

What are your guys educated guess' for the updates of 2012. Keep them reasonable...

My educated guess for 2012:

YZ250F comes with fuel Injection and a new motor

YZ450F just refined

YZ125 and 250 with an actual update besides BNG

KTM gets small improvements to all models

EXC's gets the new SX frame and plastics

350 SXF gets motor improvements

Honda's get hydrualic clutch

KXF450 gets the showa SFF forks

Suzuki gets only small updates or maybe none at all

:smirk:

You're assuming that the 2011s clear the warehouse....They're still selling brand new 07/8/9 models. :smirk:

All except KTM anyway. Our local Katoom dealer only had 4 bikes in his showroom when the '11s started coming in. He dropped the price around $500, and those 4 were gone in a couple of weeks. He's having a hard time getting any more '11 300 XC, or XCW models already. He also sells Husaberg and Gasgas, which are rolling out the door on a regular basis too.

He does no advertising other than a FB page, and I'd guess sells as many dirt bikes (for MSRP, no deals) as all the other dealerships in the S.W. MO area put together.

And, I'd say Evan127 pretty well has it straight as to what (at the most) we'll see for Asian bike upgrades for '12.

I'd like to see the Yz250f get the same type of engine the 450 has along with FI.

oh, thanks. i dont think there will be any two strokes by....idk lets say about 2015ish.

4 stokes were just a trend kind of like leatt braces, direct injection 2 strokes will own everything by 2015.

KTM 300 250 sx, xc, xcw 2st gets direct injection, its almost certain.

Dont forget, the world is supposed to end in 2012 anyways.

My guess is DI 2 strokes by 2012. First KTM then later the japs. My guess is that the japs won't put out DI 2t's until later like 13 or 14 and that would just be to stay competitive.

You must be one of the leatt fan boys and if you really like 2 strokes then don't make statements like that :smirk:
